[audio]Amos 7:14 presuppositions and rhetoric - Tim Bulkeley
Amos 7:14 is a striking problem for interpreters, not least because what Amos is reported as saying to Amaziah seems to contradict what he is reported to be doing in the rest of the book. This makes it fertile ground for us to incorporate either our presuppositions or rhetoric into the text. (I use the NIV and Grasping God's Word) as examples in this but do not intend disrespect for the translators or authors, just to suggest they are human too! Duvall, J...

[audio]E100-46: Isaiah 51:1 -€“ 53:12: Reading prophets for pleasure and profit - Dr Tim Bulkeley
I have not focused these 5 Minutes on how Is 53 speaks so clearly about Jesus, it is the Old Testament passage that is most clearly, directly and simply fulfilled in Christ. But that status should not make it paradigmatic for undedrstanding how Jesus fulfills Scripture. For more on that (and there is nothing on that in this podcast :( see What DOES "fulfil" mean? And other podcasts on this topic here...

[audio]E100-50: Malachi 1:1 - 4:6: The book that makes the bridge - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Malachi is a short prophetic book, the name Malachi just means "my messenger" which seems to be what the speaker calls himself. It has no more details of time, place or person in the superscription (as most prophetic books do), but the content suggests Judah after the exile under Persian rule. The book opens opens with a strong statement of Yahweh's election of Israel, using hyperbole (exageration) to make it's impact...

[audio]E100 Week 10: Prophets: three principles to unlock the code - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Prophets and prophecy: the most misunderstood part of OT, âmysterious messengersâ. A random chunk from a prophetic book will offer a confusing, seemingly muddled, confusion of vivid picture language. Yet, three simple principles can (usually) unlock the mystery and allow the prophets to speak: * conversion not prediction * context not timeless * conversation not monologue As I'll explain briefly in this podcast these three principles can cause mere fortune tellers to become evangelists, and th...

[audio]E100-49: Jonah 1:1 - 4:11: Jonah: a "€œWhy'€™d he do it?"€ story - Dr Tim Bulkeley
These four chapters tell the story of God's prophet Jonah (who attentive Bible students know from 2 Kings 14:25: He restored the border of Israel from Lebo-hamath as far as the Sea of the Arabah, according to the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, which he spoke by his servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet, who was from Gath-hepher. This true prophet runs away from God, says a long prayer inside a fish, preaches a five word sermon and converts the capital of an unusually brutal empire, and...

[audio]E100-47: Jeremiah 1:1 -€“ 3:5: Getting started as a prophet - Dr Tim Bulkeley
The call of Jeremiah should really have come before the Isaiah reading, as it gives us a good introduction to what a prophet is, and what prophets do. This reading also gives us a clear idea why prophets were often not much appreciated by the people to whom they were sent to proclaim God's message. There is so much one could talk about here, that I will focus mainly on Jeremiah's call and what that tells us about prophets, to help you understand other prophetic books...
